2021 Data Science Leadership Summit

📣 Due to the ongoing pandemic and the responses from our community to our survey, the Data Science Leadership Summit Program Committee has decided to cancel the in-person 2021 Summit originally scheduled to take place in Savannah, GA. We are planning to bring you some of the Summit content virtually this fall and winter. We are working through the details of this change and will keep the community apprised. Keep an eye out here and in your email for updates!

About the Data Science Leadership Summit

The goal of the Data Science Leadership Summit is to convene leaders of data science programs and faculty interested in creating new initiatives on their campuses: to form an academic leadership community for data science; to share best practices where they face similar challenges and opportunities; and to take collective responsibility in preparing next-generation data scientists to contribute in the best interests of society.

The Leadership Summit is invitation-only. If you are interested in attending, please contact info@academicdatascience.org and remember ADSA Institutional Members get a guaranteed spot! Additionally, individual ADSA members get registration discounts. Learn More about our Leadership Community.

We are grateful for the support of our Sponsors!
